My goal as a speaker is not to motivate your audience for a moment, but to create mindset shifts that inspire them for a lifetime. Whether you are a corporation, school, college, or conference, it would be my honor to work with you to create lifelong transformations at your next event.

After overcoming drug addiction, post traumatic stress disorder, and alcoholism that pushed me to the brink of suicide, I have since dedicated myself to a path of mastery and service. Today, I am a US Marine veteran, ultra-runner, explorer, speaker, entrepreneur and author of the book “Fearvana: The Revolutionary Science of How to Turn Fear Into Health, Wealth and Happiness.” About the book, The Dalai Lama said “Fearvana inspires us to look beyond our own agonizing experiences and find the positive side of our lives.”

I have often been in environments that require me to operate at my very best or risk losing my life. I am committed to bringing that level of performance to your event.

I have presented to audiences all over the world in multiple settings and contexts, from middle schools to colleges to fortune 500 companies.

Using inspiring stories, engaging humor, proven material based on years of research in neuroscience, psychology and spirituality and most importantly actionable takeaways I will deliver a presentation that will linger with your audience long after they leave the room.

From my perspective, learning does not occur unless there is behavior changes. As such, my mission is to create lifelong transformation for your audience, and I have spent years figuring out how to do just that.

Beyond just the stage, I am also committed to creating a smooth and enjoyable working relationship. I know that it takes a lot of hard work and effort to organize the logistics of an event, so I will make the process as easy as possible for you.
